At first I felt a little sorry for her, as I feel for most people with emotional problems. But given the traits and personality that boiled up in the video, as her employer I would really have to question if she had, and would, perform her job in a professional and fair manner.

Yeah, but looking at her boss, I would suppose that Kayleigh McEnany's job is quite secure for now.




You did mean to post in this thread, right?

In other US Politics and the Coronavirus news, this story is totally true. [thehill.com]

Quote:
GOP chairwoman says 'a lot of states' have called about hosting party convention
© Greg Nash
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Tuesday that “a lot of states” have offered to host the party's convention in August after President Trump threatened to move it from North Carolina.

McDaniel, speaking on “Fox & Friends,” said that the RNC wants to hold the convention in North Carolina but agreed with Trump in faulting that state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, for not providing assurances that the large-scale event would be able to go on as planned amidst concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus.

“The president is right to say to the governor, you need to assure us before we lock in all these hotel rooms and we bring all of this revenue to your state that you’re going to let us have this convention,” McDaniel said. “There’s a lot of states that are calling the president right now saying, hey, why don’t you bring that revenue to our state?"
These states called me, and they said: "Sir. Sir. We'd love you to bring your great convention to our state. We'll have a convention here like no one has ever seen!"

But if I was a world leader I would demand an even higher level of promise: to be provided the same level of protection as Trump is provided.
Great. Free hydroxychloroqine all around!

Back in 1999 OSHA had written the final rule on protecting health care workers from tuberculosis. Everything was done, comments concluded, all published in the Federal Register (a US thing).

Along came GW Bush (i.e. a Republican POTUS) and one of the first things he did was simply unfund implementation of the final rule. Screw Congress, screw the workers.

Now here we are (actually were) again.

NPR: Trump Team Killed Rule Designed To Protect Health Workers From Pandemic Like COVID-19
Quote:
When President Trump took office in 2017, his team stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the healthcare industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic like COVID-19. That decision is documented in federal records reviewed by NPR.

"If that rule had gone into effect, then every hospital, every nursing home would essentially have to have a plan where they made sure they had enough respirators and they were prepared for this sort of pandemic," said David Michaels, who at the time served as head of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

There are still no specific federal regulations protecting healthcare workers from deadly airborne pathogens like influenza, tuberculosis or the coronavirus.

Texas lieutenant governor Dan Patrick last month:
Quote:
“They told us, Tucker, to follow the science. Well what science?” Patrick questioned. “At the end of January, Dr. [Anthony] Fauci — who I have great respect for — said this wasn’t a big issue. Three weeks later we were going to lose two million people and another few weeks later it was 100,000 to 200,000. Now it’s under 60,000.” Texas Tribune
Better now, Dan?
